hearings are set to start on his nomination as defense secretary. the ad is from a conservative group called americans for strong defense. at least five other groups from the right and from the left are all organizing to block hagel's nomination. first though shame on you, barack obama. it was one of hillary clinton's most notorious quotes when challenging her 2008 democratic opponent, then candidate obama later shot back calling his opponent, quote, likable enough. the two have come a long way since then in a jooint joint interview airing tonight on "60 minutes" the president says he'll miss clinton calling her the finest secretary of state ever and wishes she was sticking around. nbc white house correspondent peter alexander joining me live now. peter, secretary clinton leaves the administration. what can we expect from the relationship between these two over the next few years? >> well, craig, given the amount of money that goes into a presidential campaign, i think you could say that's probably the $1 billion question right now. a lot of people want to see exactly how this relatio
was for the president. one is ted cruz, the guy who opposes both kerry for state and chuck hagel for defense. how interesting. two people who have fought for their country, the vietnam war, been awarded medals for their service. ted cruz was never serving in the military, but insists these two gutsy veterans don't deserve the office to which the president has appointed them. don't you just love these people? they don't like the military enough to join it, they dump on people who served and have the nerve to ask for more war. ask the typical hawk what he thought the war was looking back, a bad idea. putting our marines into lebanon, somalia. my appearance experience is they like them all. not only that, but they are always, as i said, ready for another. iraq, yes. afghanistan, yes. iraq again, yes. iran, let's go. why do people listen to these types? why the knee-jerk salute every time one of these armchair hawks itches for another conflict? i'm glad we have kerry now as the same reason i'm glad there was an anwar sadat, a yitzhak rabin. and out of the disastrous suez campaign. i'm glad the hawks
